Other Amenities

  • Casa Del Sol , unlike most houses in the Keys, is built at ground level. This translates to ease of entry as well as no stairs to navigate to put away those heavy groceries! Being able to walk directly out to the pool and barbeque area without going up and down stairs is a real advantage. Imagine yourself running up and down those stairs to tend to the outdoor grill !! Owners of smaller boats will appreciate the step - down section of our dock. Entry and exit from your boat is made easy by greatly reducing the distance between the dock and the gunwhale. Pool heat is available at an extra charge for those that need it. If the pool is heated to maintain a constant temperature of 84 degrees, the weekly charge is $250.. There is a small folding bed, also a booster seat with tray . We also have a child gate and a 'pack 'n play ...moreless

Car: Recommended

The quaint tropical village of Marathon is conveniently located in the middle of the keys island chain. Fifty miles from Key West, and 100 miles from Miami, it has become the destination of choice for the outdoor enthusiast. Nature watching, abundant marine life, beautiful beaches and world class diving can be enjoyed by the entire family. Home to fabulous sport fishing; whether on the blue waters of the gulf stream or Florida Bay's renown back country, the variety of fishing is unparalleled. Other activities may include a dolphin show, Marathon's live theatre, a game of tennis or golf, or just plain relaxing. Marathon's climate is ideal,with average mid winter temperatures ranging from 65 - 80, and summer from 75 to the upper 80s. Area restaurants are many and varied, most of them built on or over the water. Whether the cuisine is local or international, most restaurants will feature the freshest of fish, lobster, stone crab, as well as the fantastic Key West pink shrimp.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: For years we vacationed in the islands and then later went to Central America for holidays. We finally settled on Caye Caulker, in Belize ,where we spent many happy years. As we got older we wanted to find a place in the US where travel would be easier and medical services better. Marathon offered all of that yet still had the island feel. Surprisingly it also turned out to be better fishing all around than any of the other places that we had been.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon, FL, USA:
We chose this property for it's size and privacy. We have five boys and a girl and we wanted to have plenty of room for the whole family. The house needed total rennovation which was good as we were able to do just about everything that we wanted to do with it.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Fabulous place for a family reunion or celebration of any kind. Large enough to sleep 14 people .
